Hello everyone,

I have the subtitle problem on Wİndows Media player too.

Was it solved after taking the ownership and rename the file C:\Windows\System32\mfpmp.exe?

Is there anything else that i should do?

I couldt find the where subtitles turned on/off on the MCE.

windows 7 64bit

In my case, I installed vista codec pack and when I double click the video file in windows explorer, I can load the subtitle. However, if I click play in media center, it will not load subtitle. Strange.

You might want to check out this thread at the Green Button. To get soft subtitles for XViD to play in 7MC, you might either need to replace the MP3 decoder dll or Media Foundation executable with the one from Vista. The file names are mp3dmod.dll and mfpmp.exe respectively. Copy in place, restart, and that might do the trick.

The Green Button - Subtitles in AVI (DivX/Xvid) at 7MC!!!!!! - SOLVED

When I get home, I think I might just want to try swapping the mp3dmod.dll file because subtitles work with AC3 audio out of the box. Thus I'm thinking it's the mp3 dll that's the roadblock.

the better thing to do is to let ffdshow override that since you dont have the mp3dmod.dll

ffdshow should let you see the subtitles though...

i have that as my default (with of course renaming the dll)

i came across that before but i thought it would be too risky and since no one asked until know didnt remember to give that info out...

disable the mfpmp.exe because i dont believe the wmp 12 codecs (are they still called that?) can handle subs

i am thinking your have a avi file (most like with a separate subtitle file )

what you want to do is let ffdshow (and haali + directvobsub) get preference over mfpmp.exe....

just change it back as it might cripple the playback of some of your files....


take ownership and rename it

after watching the file rename it back...
Thank you darkassain. Your solution worked WMP 12 , it shows subtitles by vobsub after renaming mfpmp.exe.

But there is another problem, the subtitles dont work under Media Center. Media Center uses WMP 12, I couldnt undurstand why it doesnt work under Media Center.

Any suggestion for Media Center?

you see it depends.....
i dont remember correctly (since i moved from x32 to x64 7000 build)
for 32 bit it should work....

this is for 64 (since it came back to me [my laptop came with x64 vista which led to have experience with my first x64 os....]
i just remembered that WMC uses x64 mfpmp instead of the x32 mfpmp....

if you download the x64 version of fddshow (it rather install Klite 64bit) and install it and rename the one in the

of remember to enable subtitles....
